Ksamil, full of tourist during the summer, is the Pearl of Southern point of Albania. Like every place in Albania, offers you great food and hospitality.
Ksamil is a village and a former municipality in the riviera of Southern Albania, and part of Butrint National Park.
At the 2015 local government reform it became a subdivision of the municipality Sarandë. The population at the 2011 census was 2,994. The municipal unit consists of the villages Ksamil and Manastir. The proper coastal village, built in 1966, is located south of the city of Sarandë off the road to Butrint.
Ksamil is one of the most frequented coastal resorts by both domestic and foreign tourists. Ksamil Beach and Albania’s Ionian Coast further north was included in The Guardian’s 20 of the best bargain beach holidays for 2013.
The main attractions are the nearby Ksamil Islands. If you’d prefer a more secluded beach, you can take a boat to one of the smaller islands or swim over. The mainland beach is small but very clean. A stunning gem, that you can see your own feet, walking inside it.
Ksamil Beach is incredibly lovely and definitely worth a visit. In addition, the food is relatively cheap. For instance, a pasta will cost you between 3-5 dollar.
